Arguably, the most highly touted talent in English Rugby, Henry Arundell, has already collected a highlight reel worthy of a full career.

The 21-year-old back-three star broke through for London Irish two seasons ago with his length-of-the-pitch try against Toulon grabbing headlines the world over.

Since then, Arundell has gone on to become an English international, with his five-try performance against Chile at the World Cup earning him a place in England’s 3rd place match with Argentina.

Whilst his performance that evening did set the world alight, it did prove that England head coach Steve Borthwick see’s a bright future for Arundell.

Now playing for French Top 14 powerhouse Racing 92 since London Irish’s heartbreaking demise. Arundell has gone to another level since his move to Paris.

Scoring a hattrick for the Parisians on his debut against Toulon, Arundell had social media abuzz with excitement.

A few weeks later and Arundell is at it again, this time against back-to-back European Champions La Rochelle.

Ronan O’Gara’s side have had a rotten start to their season and currently languishes in 11th place whilst Racing top the table.

Thus it was little surprise that Racing took control of the clash in a rather dominant fashion.

Despite clearly being in the ascendancy, Racing struggled to get a crucial bonus point try.

That was of course until the final minutes when Arundell showed his athleticism to finish a remarkable try in the corner.

The score was so good that it had two-time Springbok Rugby World Cup-winning captain Siya Kolisi out of his seat.
